Review by Anonymous (posted on 5-Jul-2007)

I'm sorry to say that this movie was a waste of money and a waste of the talents of Tommy Lee Jones and Cate Blanchett in such a far fetched, dumb movie. Dragging the little girl along which no mother in her right mind would do, the father (Jones) just happened to appear at just the right moment, it was just poorly done and needed a better script.
